I’ve not seen as many Traffic Hawaldars as much in Thane. Looks like it is pilgrimage for them here. Helmet is compulsory. If you are not wearing helmet while driving on two wheeler, you can be caught and forced to pay at least Rs. 100. Traffic hawaldar will not give you receipt of this amount. He will give you a receipt which says that he had taken the license and you are allowed to drive without license. That receipt is also canceled so that they don’t have any obligation of owning confiscated license.
What you should carry to be on safer side.
- Proof of ownership of vehicle (Registration copy)
- Insurance Papers
- Driving License
- Also should be wearing helmet
